I Talk Like a River centers on a father and his son, who has a stutter. The father takes his son on a walk by the river to help him find his voice.

Sheeran said he hopes the story helps "inspire and support other children who stutter."

"Growing up, I had a stutter like the boy in I Talk Like a River, so I'm delighted to be reading this story for CBeebies Bedtime Stories, especially as I'm a new dad myself," the star said.
